Publisher's Summary

The dangerously beautiful Deirdre Cantor is determined to inherit her grandfather's vast fortune. All she needs is to marry a duke...and be the first granddaughter to walk down the aisle. After all, she has always dreamed of becoming a member of the haute ton. So when the proper Calder Marbrook, the Marquis of Brookhaven and future Duke of Brookmoor, is abandoned at the altar, Deirdre makes it her business to become his wife-in spite of the whispers about his past.

Soon Deirdre's visions of a lavish existence with the handsome Calder are shattered when she learns his shocking secret. Feeling betrayed, Deirdre seeks revenge by playing a perilous and seductive game of cat and mouse with her husband that threatens to drive them both to the heights of passion. She will not surrender to him, no matter how great her desire. But at what cost? Calder is determined to keep his secret under lock and key-and to make his stunning wife his in every way that matters. Even if it means winning her heart all over again.

Critic Reviews

"Bradley tells an involved, sexy story. If you haven't yet read a Bradley novel, let yourself be seduced by the mistress of the genre!" (RT Book Reviews)

Good writing and narrating continue in part 2!

Another good story. Bradley really adds depth to characters we have already met. Although the book could stand alone, it is a definite compliment to the first in the series and another enjoyable listen. The tale continues with more intrigue and challenges. The narrator is top of the line!
